Jason Kidd finally played Kidd-like minutes — a season-high 31:53 — and he saved his best for last.

Kidd, with Ronnie Brewer’s knee swelling up, played the first nine minutes of the fourth quarter and made a handful of big plays early to give the Knicks the momentum for good as they pulled away from the Magic, 99-89, last night to stay unbeaten.

Off a high screen from Tyson Chandler, Kidd, who moved back to point guard, drained a 3-pointer, then hit a floater in the lane as the Knicks built an 84-80 lead with 7:37 left.

He also played his frantic defense.

“Seems like the older he gets, the bigger plays he makes,’’ said Chandler, who teamed with Kidd to win the 2011 title with the Mavericks.
